Marten Visser is a contemporary vocalist and pianist with an extensive performance and teaching career.

He loves music and how it gives us a creative way to share stories, emotions and experiences with other people, and it’s been his passion since he was a little kid!

Like most families in the City of Knox, he has found the challenge of being in lockdown with a young family, as well as working full time, quite full on but has used music as an escape – even if it’s in the messy toy room at home!

Tonight, he’s going to share a range of music from Jazz, to pop covers, acoustic ballads and a couple of gospel tunes to help make your Friday night a little more special. So, grab a glass of something nice, sit back and enjoy.

WHEN: Friday 2 October
TIME: 8:00pm
WHERE: Your lounge room!!! View the live-stream on the Knox Arts and Events Facebook page.

Securing your Future with a Fundraising Plan
Wednesday, October 21, 2020
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Facilitator: Non Profit Training
There is little doubt that the pandemic has made it hard for groups to fundraise. This timely session will help your group to review your current fundraising practices and look to secure your future with alternative solutions. Non-profit organisations often have a limited amount of money at their disposal and if one income stream comes to an end; sometimes it can also be the end for the organisation. At the end of this session, participants will have constructed a three-year funding plan that fits.
Topics include:

Reviewing the right approach for a community organisation;
The skills that are needed to succeed;
Who is responsible for what;
Pros and cons of different modes of fundraising; and
Embedding fundraising as part of the everyday.

Navigating everyday life during (and after) COVID-19 – an OT perspective
Tuesday, October 27, 2020
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
OT
Hosted by Knox City Council

This session is being offered as part of Occupational Therapy (OT) Week. There is no doubt our normal daily life has changed as a result of COVID-19. We now participate in strict hand hygiene, wearing masks, staying at home, physical distancing, being tested if we have symptoms, following guidelines and remaining flexible to changes in directives.

Many, if not all, of us have experienced loss as well as anxiety in the face of so many unknowns during this time. However, it is also possible that some unexpected good may have emerged amongst this difficult and ongoing experience.

This talk by Knox City Council’s OT will explore ideas and provide prompts for reflection to help each of us tailor a new normal for ourselves, hold onto any hidden treasures we may have discovered along the way and attempt to live our best lives during and after this pandemic.
